Abstract:

Developing shape-from-video based software tools will enable US shipyards to create cost effective three-dimensional (3D) models of shipboard components (for engineering applications and/or virtual reality simulators) while ships are still in service ? significantly shortening overall repair cycle time. This approach makes use of the massively redundant information in a video stream to support the automation and simplification of the 3D modeling task. Conceptually there would be only three steps required: - take a hand held video of the area to be modeled, - identify one or more standard 3D catalog items in the video stream (to provide scale and orientation information), - dump the 3D model into the required CAD environment (ShipConstructorTM, CATIATM, AutoCADTM, FactoryCADTM, and MicroStationTM are all currently supported)
